    Why let X-Man swing away when you can leave it up to Cozart and Stubbs.

    The thing is, if I'm BP or Rolen, I want to play tonight and all weekend. You couldn't keep me out of the lineup.

    I just think it's now or never. So I disagree with all of you and you're entitled to my opinion.

    Just kidding.

    Cozart hit the first pitch over the wall on Tuesday night. I guess he thought lightning would strike twice.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Stubbs K's.


    3-3 to the bottom of 9.

    Hard to see the Reds winning this game, to be honest. Here's hoping.

    I think I would have tried Heisey there....likely same result.

    The Cards are in there hotel room in Cincy eating room service and watching the game.

    Really hope this doesn't go extra long, and the bullpen gets burned up.

    They will probably go with Hoover. Broxton is the closer tonight and will be kept available for a potential save.

    They're all worth the same, though it's true that the St. Louis series is bigger because the Reds have an opportunity to both win and also force a loss on their nearest competitor in the division.

    Quick. Somebody order a delivery of Skyline coneys, White Castle hamburgers, Taco Bell, and Graeter's ice cream and send it to the Cardinal players in their hotel rooms.
